  Russian muggles see Potter flick at last
Updated 27 March 2002, 14.14
Ron and Harry
Potter and friends have finally flown into Russian cinemas nearly four months after the film premiered in the UK.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone opened in Russia on Thursday and has made a spellbinding 1m ($1.5m) already.

Flocking for Potter

Legolas in The Fellowship of the Ring
The Fellowship of the Ring won four Oscars

Over 415,000 Potter-mad Russian muggles have flocked to see their magical hero.

But it will have to conjure up a little bit more magic to beat the Russian takings for The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring.

The Oscar-winning fantasy has made over 4.2m ($6m) at Russian cinemas since it came out a month ago.

And the battle between the two will heat up again later this year.

The second Potter film, The Chamber of Secrets, hits our screens on 15 November.

That's closely followed by the second Lord of the Rings film, The Two Towers, which is out a week before Christmas.
